In a world gone mad with war, spiralling economies and rightwing climate change deniers, we bring you what everyone needs right now: photographs of bears.
Along with a note that though their mere presence makes us feel delight, they are too in danger of disappearing. As their habitats recede on a warming planet, some of these beasts face imminent extinction.
Margot Raggett’s inspiration for producing the new photographic book, Remembering Bears, came upon seeing an image of a starving polar bear,
suffering from the effects of reducing sea ice.
She says that polar bears are among the species that are more visibly and immediately affected by climate change. As sea ice melts, their habitat is disappearing and they have reduced hunting time.
